Our expert says:
This could be symptoms of Prostatism, enlargement of the prostate causing pressure on the urine tube (urethra). An examination by a GP will confirm this (and will be the cheapest). Cancer can be excluded by a PSA blood test and a physical examination of the prostate. This can exclude cancer 99%. I know having a prostate examination is very unpleasant and most men avoid it like the plague but it is really, really important and is over in 5 minutes. There is medication one can use like Proscar ( the generic is much cheaper) to shrink the prostate and this will clear up the symptoms too.
